So you write articles and blog posts to encourage, teach and motivate others. After all this is what blogs are for, are they not? They are there to motivate someone else to do something. To learn, to change, to be encouraged.
Your blog is read by many who look to you to keep those great articles coming. To continue to inspire them. Your readers come to your blog, before their cup of morning “get-up-and-go” java.
Why? Because you motivate and inspire them. But who motivates you?
Have you ever had one of those days, or weeks when you just do not feel motivated to write anything? You run out of blog post ideas. You feel down and miserable.
Yet you have the extra burden of being relied upon to motivate others.
I once read a statement that is so true: “Leadership is not for sissies”. This is so true, and applies to blogs as well. Blogging is not for sissies.
If you are a leader in your niche, if you are a guru that others look to for answers, then you can’t crawl up in a corner and cry when things get tough, You are a leader, others depend on you.
So then, who motivates or what motivates you when you need motivation?
Often motivators rely on themselves to keep motivated. Here are a few tips that you can employ.
